Midlands Technical College and the University of South Carolina have established Transfer Connect (formerly known as the Bridge Program) to provide a streamlined transfer process for MTC-USC Transfer Connect students. The University of South Carolina has expanded its student-oriented programs and services to MTC for students interested in enrolling at the Columbia campus.
At MTC, USC Transfer Connect students will be able to receive information on admissions, financial aid and scholarships, and academic support programs at USC. USC Transfer Connect students, like all MTC students, can participate in musical ensembles at the University, including the University (concert) Bands, however, cannot audition for nor participate in the USC Marching Band, the color guard, nor coquettes.
Registering for Transfer Connect: High School students who apply to the University and are eligible for Transfer Connect will receive information from Undergraduate Admission in early summer. Students who do not apply to the University as incoming freshman should meet with a University admissions counselor or with a representative at their technical colleges to determine their eligibility for the program. If the student is eligible, then complete the Transfer Connect Form (available in the forms section). The Transfer Connect Form is not your official admissions application but serves to enroll you in Transfer Connect only. The deadline to submit the Transfer Connect form for spring transfers is September 1 and for fall transfers is February 1.
MTC-USC Transfer Connect students will be eligible for enrollment at the University of South Carolina after completing a minimum of 30 hours, or by completing an associate degree. The links below provide additional information.
